Filmed in 1991-92 during Metallica’s world tour, this film provides a behind-the-curtains view into the band’s daily on- and off-stage lives. Concert performances, backstage scenes, individual and group interviews, music videos and abundant insider footage help deliver valuable insight and context.
Hurry up and wait. That mantra has long been internalized by musicians who spend much of their lives on the road. Contrary to the glamor portrayed in fictionalized films and sensationalized articles, bands usually devote a majority of their time to shuffling from one town to another and idling about in exchange for spending a relatively brief time onstage. They often repeat the process the next day. And the day after that.
